Jane’s Doodles New Release Blog Hop and a Giveaway

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is jdbanner-1-1.jpg

Hello and welcome to another Jane’s Doodles blog hop where the Design Team (and three uber talented guests – Daniel Diaz, Wanda Guess and Laura Bassen) are showcasing Jane’s latest stamp sets – Old is Gold, Hope and Road Trip.
You should have arrived from Kaja’s blog.
I have three cards to share with you today. First up uses the Hope stamp set. Such a pretty floral image. There are additional images in the set, but I just used the main floral cluster in this one.

A very simple card – coloured with Copics and mounted onto a white card base.

Next up, this card again uses the Hope stamp set, but I did some masking and used the Old is Gold stamp set as well. Coloured with Copics and mounted onto a card base. To add some additional detail, I sponged in some sun rays with a subtle soft sand ink colour.

Last, but not least, is this cute stamp set called Road Trip. These critters are just way too adorable and the added extras on the roof can be stacked very whimsically. Again all coloured with Copics.

Happy New Year!

Hello! I thought I would get one last card in for 2020! What a year it has been.

Today I am sharing a Jane’s Doodles card which was up on the JD blog this week. You can find the original post here.

This card is made using the Wonderful You stamp set and the sentiment is from the Monster Squad set. Stamped and coloured with Copics. The background is some blended Distress Oxide ink and then textured with some green copic markers.

Bright and colourful and just the way I like it!

Thank you for your support in this very different (and difficult) year. May your 2021 be filled with God’s blessings.

Happy New Year.

Critters Galore – Penny Black ‘Refreshing’ Inspiration #5

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is refreshing-banner-1.jpg

Me again! Two posts in 2 days! What is happening to me? Well these posts are the fruit of a very productive crafty weekend. I’ve had such fun in the studio of late. These adorable critters from Penny Black are from the Refreshing release and I just couldn’t stop at one tag – so made 4!

All these cute critters are from the Critter Delights stamp set.

I used the Tagged creative metal die set and die cut 4 tags. I then stamped each image onto a tag with Memento Tuxedo black ink and coloured them with Copic markers. (Once coloured, I like to re-stamp over the image again in VersaFine Onyx black ink as it makes everything pop!).

I die cut the Silver Linings cloud dies out of some Post-It notes and used these as a stencil to create the clouds in the backgrounds. I kept on moving it around and changing up the angles. I used Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink for the clouds.

The sentiments are all from the Carefree Wishes stamp set from a previous release.

Thanks for sticking with me through this photo heavy post. I had a lot of fun creating these tags and know that they will come in very handy for my kid’s friends birthdays.

Trust Me – Penny Black ‘Refreshing’ Inspiration #4

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is refreshing-banner-1.jpg

Good evening! I’ve had a rather crafty weekend and I’m back to share with you some more Penny Black goodness using products from the Refreshing release.

Today’s card uses a beautiful vase of flowers from the Refreshing stamp set. I stamped it onto some Neenah Solar white cardstock and then coloured it with Copic markers. I really love the yellowy-orange and teal combination of colours. Something a little different for me.

The sentiment is from the Trust Me Builder stamp set. I stamped the Trust Me in black ink, then white heat embossed the ‘You’re lovely’ portion onto some card stock and popped it up with some foam tape.

In order to match the card base to the colours on the vase, I simply coloured the edge of my white notecard with one of the Copic marker colours I used…and no one will ever know that the whole card base isn’t that colour!

Thanks for stopping by. To view and or purchase any of these new products from these releases, head to the Penny Black online store.

Sending Love and Hello – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

Hello, I’m back with another two cards for Jane’s Doodles. Both cards are very similar, but I wanted the experiment and try this simple technique using different stamps and I got completely different results.

Both cards use the same colour combo of Distress Oxide Inks – Seedless Preserves, Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber. I think these colours look great together. I masked off the areas I wanted coloured with either washi tape or masking paper. I sponged on the Distress Ink fairly heavily. For the butterfly card I used the Doodle Butterflies stamp set and stamped it all with VersaFine Onyx black ink.

For the second card I used the Plumeria stamp set and the Hello sentiment is from the Cactus stamp set. No colouring required, so it was a pretty easy and quick set of cards to make. To finish them off I used some Nuvo dots (pearl).

The great news is that Jane is back from her vacation and the shop is once again in full operation.

If you have any questions about my cards, just contact me and I’d be happy to answer them.

Hello – Jane’s Doodles

Jane's Doodle Banner

I’m back again, and unlike my last post, I have a card to share! I hope you managed to hop along on the Jane’s Doodles new release blog hop. If not, head here to begin the hop – and there is also a chance to win a stamp set of your choice! Jane is also having a 30% off sale.

Today it is my turn on the JD blog, and I have created a colourful floral card using the Bloom stamp set.

I had some fun with some texture paste, which I haven’t used in ages! I pulled out the Small Brick Wall stencil from MFT – I love the imperfections around the edges.

I stamped and coloured the flowers in Versamark ink onto some Strathmore Bristol card stock and did some watercolouring with some Zig Real Colour Brush markers.

I die cut a rectangle frame from cream card stock using the MFT Stitched Rectangle Stax dies and the Hello sentiment is actually part of this Christmas die set from Penny Black.

I added dimension to most of the elements using mounting foam. If you have any questions about my card, just email me.

Until next time,
